Part 2: Organizational and People Issues

Most ventures which fail do so because of people issues, not technology, market or funding issues. What people are needed to take the Venture Plan from paper to reality? How do you identify good team members and avoid problems? Building an External Team and an Internal Team. Developing and implementing a philosophy for the business.
